Peapod From Cape Split, Maine


This boat, from Cape Split, Maine, was used as a lobstering pod for 50 years or more. She has a shallow arc midsection that is more like a canoe or guide boat. She has only about 14" of depth amidships, and her stems are about 2' high. She is planked a bit more lightly than most working pods, with 7/16" cedar, and her frames (7/16" x 3/4") are on 5" centers. Her stern is slightly sharper and lower than the bow. She is quite straight-keeled, with a square oak tim­ber backed by a keel batten.  From 87 Boat Designs by Ben Fuller.  Lines taken off in 1982.
